Go Vintage with My Mind's Eye Bella Bella

I had a couple of special vintage photos that I knew would work beautifully with these papers.

My favorite was the photo of my mom having a slumber party with her girlfriends in 1963-- so cute! I added to the great Bella Bella papers and accessory sheet and with the vintage photo as well as vintage lace, newspaper and wall paper (we actually tore some off the wall!). I used Liquid Pearls to glam it up a little, and contrasted that with inking and tearing some edges to keep the aged look. This page was so fun to do!

I also got to create a page with a couple of photos of my dad when he returned from Navy Basic Training in 1970. Here I used some of the Laundry Line paper that is glittered and the Paperie Mocha shimmer alpha stickers by Making Memories.

Lastly, a card. I've decided to use some photos on cards. This one is an engagement photo of my maternal grandparents. I plan to send the card to one of my family members on their anniversary to honor the 50+ years that my grandparents were married and encourage my family as they strive for long and successful marriages too.

How would you like to use some of the vintage photos you have?
Pin It!

These turned out so beautiful! I love that you used a piece of vintage wallpaper on your layout from your Mom's home. These need to be seen in person to really get the full effect! Great job Angela!!

Hi friend,
these turned out so beautifully. Someone described your "style" as "Deb-like" today. Nice, huh?
